About a year ago I found this suede M&S jacket for a tenner in an Oxfam shop. It's actually not even real suede, but a very nice imitation, feeling quite authentic. 'Very chic' I thought. It went into my closet and never came out again.
A few months later I saw some cool fringe suede jackets by can’t-remember-which designer and realized: 'The boring M&S jacket just needs a bit of pepping up!'. So I gave it a neat fringe, which looked good… and never wore it.
Now, I'm sure many of you fashionistas already knew that Joseph Altuzarra is the next big thing in fashion, long before Miss Doré visited his workshop and Vogue UK dedicated a whole page to him in its March issue. In any case, I quite fancy his Indian inspired, soft leather skirts, trousers and shoes, and since I also have a bit of a thrifty side in me, inspiration struck… 'Where is the old M&S jacket???'
It even provided for some shoe fringing... Maybe it’s third time lucky. Otherwise it’s back to Oxfam!
So, what’s your take on the leather look: Loving the soft suede look, too? Or is it only black nappa for you? Or does wearing animal skin not agree with you at all?
